San Diego Trip

Hey everybody - we just got back from San Diego. I was attending the American Thoracic Society conference during the day and hanging out with the family later in the day. Anna was well behaved on the planes but wanted to be awake the whole time. Here are some of the pics from our trip...

We went out to eat at all the hot spots - the Gaslamp distrinct, along the water, in Oldtown. While having dinner the waiter dropped a glass of ice water on Anna's head....she was mortified.

The hotel pool was a daily retreat for us. Anna puts her mouth and nose in the water when you show her how to blow bubbles. We'd like to get her back in the water regularly with swimming lessons again this summer.
Of course we had to visit the San Diego Zoo! The zoo was magnificent. The best aspect of the zoo was how the landscaping and botanical aspects were completely integrated with the exhibits - you really felt like you were in that area of the globe, especially in the enormous aviaries. Anna was a big fish fan and she also liked the giraffes and hippos.

But Anna's favorite part was the petting grotto. She chased the goats down and also got to play with sheep and bunnies.

So, will Anna turn into a butterfly one day?

  1. Hi Pete and Seasson,

    Love the pictures and comments! This was a great idea--Anna is so pretty and it looks like you had a great time in San Diego. Are you getting ready for the move to South Dakota? There are some really interesting parks and places there (and a lot of empty space) I bet you get a lot of house for your money! What did you do at the meeting of the American Thoracic Society?

    Hope to see you before you make your move out West. Love Cathie and family
